Saban called ESPN's Maria Taylor to apologize after interview



"I think both guys are good players, I think both guys can help our team", Saban said. The final numbers for Tagovailoa, who played only one series in the second half: 12 of 16 for 227 yards and two touchdowns.

Tua Tagovailoa and Jalen Hurts both played Saturday night in the Crimson Tide's 51-14 victory over Louisville, with Tagovailoa under center for the majority of the offensive snaps. He then quickly turned up the cranky factor to 11. "I'm not going to, so quit askin".

Alabama is 9-0 in neutral-site openers under Saban, outscoring the opposition 339-125 (37.7-13.9) in those games.

Saban refused to name a starting quarterback before Saturday night's game, even going so far as to refuse to tell Taylor who would go out on the field first right before the kickoff. He played so well, in fact, that it's easy to see how he'll be Alabama's primary QB throughout the season. This particular QB situation at Alabama has been more unique than previous QB battles, but Saban has stuck to his way of doing things to try avoiding a controversy.

Now, Nick Saban got heated with Georgia's Maria Taylor for asking a general question.

Saban was unhappy with the way his team performed during the game and said as much during his postgame remarks to the media.
